Meizu boasts about its success, sells a mind-boggling number of phones in March 2015

Meizu is another China-based up-and-comer – maybe less famous to western customers than Xiaomi, but definitely spearheading its way to success in the eastern markets. The manufacturer became known for its MX (especially the MX4 and MX4 Pro) series flagships – powerful handsets at midrange price that boast incredibly thin bezels – and has also reaped the success of its new "entry level" phones – the Meizu m1 note and Blue Charm– colorful midrangers with decent specs and surprisingly good cameras, priced around the $110 mark (for China).

Well, it seems that churning out those desirable phones at such stellar prices is doing Meizu good, as the company has today revealed that it has shipped 2 million smartphones in the third month of 2015. "That's a lot of phones!" you may think, but, fact is that the company's VP has said that it's possible that Meizu will sell 20 million units overall in 2015, so, the company may not be done yet.

What could be the catalyst for so many sales, though? Well, we've heard rumors about an upcoming Meizu MX4 Supreme, and whispers that it will be made in collaboration with Nokia have flew around more than a couple of times (even though they've been denied by Meizu officials). Now, we have no doubt that the MX4 Supreme will be a great handset, regardless of whether the rumors are true or not, but if it just so happens that it really is powered by a Nokia PureView camera, or has had some design ideas injected by the Finnish company, we are pretty sure that the phone's popularity will skyrocket (much like the N1 tablet has attracted an unexpectedly large amount of attention).

Kudos to Meizu. Now, where is Xiaomi?

Xiaomi has been leading all along , they'll try to sell 100 million phones this year and if it happens it'll break records. Meizu has not been doing that great since two years , but they are cathcing up this year, personally I prefer Meizu over Xiaomi. lately Flyme UI is amazing has some unique one-handed features for big phones. Meizu is the only company I know that uses Samsung exynos processesors over SD , which will give them a edge this year as SD 810 is crap ,and if they do collooborate with Nokia , they'll do even better in Cameras , overall looking good for Meziu this year.

Hello! Thank you for your article.If someone want to know how to learn Chinese? I’d like to try to compare it to my previous experience of learning Chinese lessons through Skype on online classes for free. I did around 10 conversations over Skype with a native speaker from http: //preply. com/en/spanish-by-skype. And I was pretty satisfied with their Quality. I think they have a strong teaching quality, following their course curriculum now I can speak Chinese like a native , but I Want to try another option
